I bought a Macgregor Venture 21 mid season last summer. It was set up with the mainsheet mid boom and a traveler at the forward end of the cockpit. It has no boom vang. With all the discussion about the importance of a boom vang in sail trim, I would like to add one. So if I add a boom van mid mast and move the mainsheet to the end of the mast, is there any value to attaching the boom vang to the traveler or should I move it to the back of the cockpit?
